Recently, I'm visiting r/btc and r/bitcoincash on Reddit. I'm mostly confined to interacting with noise.cash and read.cash users that I felt overwhelmed by how many active members are there sharing their thoughts, memes, predictions, and appreciations about Bitcoin Cash. As an introvert and a newbie to Reddit, what I did there is just browse and try to munch on valuable BCH information I can chew. There are too many - some even too technical for me to comprehend. But I'm grateful that BCH boasts of a very welcoming and positive community wherever platform they may be.
So I tried posting one of my recent posts Pandemic, Politics, and My Hope for Bitcoin Cash because I'd love to contribute my BCH-related thoughts. And after a few minutes, I got some upvotes and a comment. Call me petty but it gave me a boost. If you're here buddy, thank you!
Guess what, I even received an upvote in read.cash because of it! Thank you @Ellie! I appreciate the tip!
What I realized from that experience is that the crypto community I am in is fun, hopeful, and helpful, and BCH fuels it all. The hope is for massive BCH adoption as a peer-to-peer payment.
The question is, how can we help? Here are some simple, doable strategies.
Blog (or vlog) about it
The internet is the primary means we can spread BCH Awareness. People are looking for answers. They need valuable information, user reviews, testimonies, and feedbacks whether positive or negative. We can blog about Bitcoin Cash, just like what I'm doing. Share what you like about it. Share your stories. Share your hopes and fears. Be genuine. It's easier to follow an ordinary person's personal experience than a rigid, often technical explanation from the experts.
Create a buzz in social media
One effective method to create a spark of curiosity is to share short posts on your favorite social media. Tease your friends and followers. Some amazing BCH lovers I know post a screenshot of their Bitcoin Wallet in their IG Stories and MyDay, and interested people will ask them questions. Then the conversation about BCH begins!
Use it as a peer to peer payment
We should use our BCH, don't just HODL everything! Our beloved crypto is meant to be used as a peer to peer electronic cash. Like fiat money, it has to circulate. I know that some of us want to hodl it for savings and to maximize future gains but I believe it loses its potential when we are just keeping it in our wallets. So I would suggest, use it as a peer-to-peer payment!
Onboard your known businesses
I love what's happening in Argentina. They're pushing for a massive Bitcoin Cash Adoption, and they started a flipstarter campaign for it. You may visit these links for more information:

How I wish our country will also push for the same massive adoption. But for now, what we can do is to encourage even small businesses to accept BCH as payments. Personally, what I did is to open up a BCH payment channel for the ebooks I'm selling on my blog.
I remember seeing posters and leaflets about BCH. I also saw some digital arts about BCH. How about Tiktok vids? Memes and GIFs. T-shirts and caps could also be one. Though I can only cite a few, I believe people's creativity has no bounds. We can be inventive in our ways to promote and make waves for BCH.
The bottom line is we have to spark curiosity. We are now enjoying BCH because at once we were curious about it. Let us make this opportunity available to others as well. BCH is sound money to the world. We are its happy and willing agents.
